'''The New Church''' (or '''Swedenborgianism''') is the name for several historically related Christian denominations that developed as a new religious movement, informed by the writings of Sweden|Swedish scientist and theologian Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772). Swedenborg claimed to have received a new revelation from Jesus Christ through continuous heavenly visions which he experienced over a period of at least twenty-five years. In his writings, he predicted that God would replace the traditional Christian Church, establishing a 'New Church', which would worship God in one person: Jesus Christ. The New Church doctrine is that each person must actively cooperate in repentance, reformation, and regeneration of one's life.Swedenborg, Emanuel.
